Former FBI Director James Comey took to Twitter on Thursday to celebrate the indictment of former president Donald Trump.
Trump fired Comey while leading an investigation into the former president in 2017.
“It’s been a good day” – James Comey simply said following the news of the Trump indictment.
While the indictment is currently under seal, CNN reported that Trump was hit with 34 counts related to business fraud.
“Former President Donald Trump faces more than 30 counts related to business fraud in an indictment from a Manhattan grand jury, according to two sources familiar with the case.”
In 2019, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz told lawmakers that he criminally referred Comey for prosecution.
However, the Justice Department ultimately declined prosecution even though it was concluded that Comey leaked classified information to the media illegally.
Comey’s tweet comes as many on the left, including Hollywood celebrities, are rejoicing over the news of Trump’s indictment.
Trump is the first former president to ever be charged with a ‘crime.’
Trump was accused of paying porn star Stormy Daniels’ hush payments’ through the now disgraced attorney Michael Cohen.
As CBS reported:
“Sources familiar with the investigation tell CBS tonight that Bragg has some documents that have been uncovered during the probe but are not yet known to the public/been reported, both financial records and communications between key figures… will use these as well as testimony.”
The NY Times added the following on what happens next with the Trump indictment:
Mr. Bragg and his lawyers will likely attempt to negotiate Mr. Trump’s surrender. If he agrees, it will raise the prospect of a former president, with the Secret Service in tow, being photographed and fingerprinted in the bowels of a New York State courthouse.
The prosecution’s star witness is Michael D. Cohen, Mr. Trump’s former fixer who paid the $130,000 to keep Ms. Daniels quiet. Mr. Cohen has said that Mr. Trump directed him to buy Ms. Daniels’s silence, and that Mr. Trump and his family business, the Trump Organization, helped cover the whole thing up. The company’s internal records falsely identified the reimbursements as legal expenses, which helped conceal the purpose of the payments.
Although the specific charges remain unknown, Mr. Bragg’s prosecutors have zeroed in on that hush money payment and the false records created by Mr. Trump’s company. A conviction is not a sure thing: An attempt to combine a charge relating to the false records with an election violation relating to the payment to Ms. Daniels would be based on a legal theory that has yet to be evaluated by judges, raising the possibility that a court could throw out or limit the charges.
The vote to indict, the product of a nearly five-year investigation, kicks off a new and volatile phase in Mr. Trump’s post-presidential life as he makes a third run for the White House. And it could throw the race for the Republican nomination — which he leads in most polls — into uncharted territory.
Mr. Bragg is the first prosecutor to lead an indictment of Mr. Trump. He is now likely to become a national figure enduring a harsh political spotlight.

The most crooked head of the FBI in history. What a disgrace he is to our nation
Anyone surprised the guy in charge while the FBI was working behind the incoming president’s back might be biased against the same president. Thus guy is exactly the problem. The FBI has historically worked against the American people… J Edgar Hoover started it and it continues today.
Spoken by a corrupt, disgraced, Eagle Scout shaming disgusting liar, who by the way, continues to lie.
Comey (King of B U M S) thinks that if he keeps lying about his corruption, false testimony, and destroying the credibility of the FBI, that somehow he will be restored to his “Eagle Scout” status and will magically become an upstanding American citizen again.
Comey Is Destined for h**l
Comey is a loser.
You are a traitor to your country.
